The paper gives an evaluation of a parent training program, the American Indian PACER program, designed and implemented to provide education and supportive services to Native American families with disabled children. The writer describes the program and reviews the literature, leading to an evaluation of the success of the program and concluding with recommendations for the improvement of the program.
From the Paper:"What makes the American Indian program special is that it not only provides all of the customary parent training given in all PACER programs, it does so in a culturally relevant and culturally sensitive manner by using Native American counselors and presenting information in a fashion that is relevant and meaningful for Native Americans. In terms of program specifics, the American Indian program offered by PACER offers workshops for parents in which they learn about special education rights and responsibilities."
